I first want to thank Karen for allowing me the opportunity to join this wonderful group. I have been a DT Member since February of 2011 and I have to say, it's been the most enjoyable thing.  I also want to thank the other lovely ladies that make up the best DT Team ever :) Everyone has been so kind and friendly and it's becoming like a second family for me. You guys rock!!! Happy Birthday to Your Next Stamp - time for the celebration to begin...

Welcome to YNS' 2nd Birthday Blog Hop, we are so happy you are here celebrating with us and our wonderful guest designers! If you have just stumbled across my blog, and want to join in all the fun and games, you can go to the start at Peggy's blog.  If you have been hopping along and are arriving from Wendy's blog then you are right on track!

What is a birthday party with out games and some AMAZING prizes? Well we have a fun little puzzle for you to solve along the hop and when you do you will be entered into the draw for one of TWO amazing YNS prizes!  Not everyone has a puzzle piece so you need to pay attention, and click on the puzzle pieces, and follow the directions as you find them along the way. [3rd party cookies must be enabled to do the puzzle] When you are done put them all together at the end of the hop for your chance to win!  You have until Monday, August 15th at Midnight EST.

PRIZES UP FOR GRABS








The cards I created for today are using the NEW World Kid's Dutch Boy Stamp. He is oh so adorable! 





Holland and the Dutch are famous for there windmills, so I compensated with a pinwheel lol. I used my TCP's Pinwheel die which was easy peasy :)





I added some sewing and rhinestones for a special touch.





Once I looked over this adorbale stamp I thought of all the possibilities he held. I could definitely see him as a farmer too...So I created a Dutch Boy farmer as well lol.  I love how this turned out.




I added a tractor charm, rhinestones and more sewing.








Pssssst......hmm I wonder what this is???? :)

Aww, your Dutch Boy card reminds me so much of "it's a small world" at Disney World! The pinwheel as well! Fabulous card! I love the farmer version too!

ScrapinShana said...

The little Dutch boy is adorable! Love what you created =)

Jenny said...

Haha- love this Dutch Boy!! The wooden shoes are too cute:) And I like how you covered them a little with grass so he could be a farmer, and not necessarily a Dutch farmer;) lol! And LOVE the pinwheel die on the first card and the colours!

ScrapinShana said...

Sorry to be a bother, but is the link missing to your puzzle piece? I can't get it for some reason...

What a great idea to show his versatility, and aren't you clever to think of the pinwheel as a windmill?! That's one of those things that makes me smack my head and say "Why didn't I think of that?!"

Kerri said...
